Description

A complex and aromatic Saint-Julien red wine

The estate

Chateau Ducru-Beaucaillou is the iconic Cru Classe of Saint-Julien and watches over a prestigious terroir. Over the past 300 years, six families have worked to maintain this wine’s unrivalled worldwide reputation. Owned by the Borie family since 1941, Chateau Ducru-Beaucaillou’s name, "beautiful pebbles", is a reference to its terroir made up of Günzian gravel. Managed by Bruno Borie, Chateau Ducru-Beaucaillou is at the pinnacle of the finest Saint-Julien wines. Year after year, the estate gives great joy to the lovers of fine Medoc wines throughout the world.

The vineyard

Chateau Ducru-Beaucaillou’s distinctiveness lies in the exceptional quality of its vineyard. The vines are planted on soils of Günzian and Pyrenean gravel deposited by the Gironde estuary nearly two million years ago. These nutrient-poor soils produce exceptional wines. Moreover, Chateau Ducru-Beaucaillou's proximity to the Gironde estuary provides the vineyard with a natural protection against climatic hazards.

The wine

Produced from a plot-selection of Chateau Ducru-Beaucaillou’s vines, La Croix Ducru-Beaucaillou offers a unique vision of the fine Saint-Julien terroir. This "high-flying" wine is made from vines located in the east, center and west of the Saint-Julien appellation.

The blend

Cabernet Sauvignon (60%)

Merlot (35%)

Petit Verdot (5%).
